Cherry Jam

Cherry Jam is a favourite for first date ideas in the North West, thanks to its roster of bottomless events. Check it out on a Saturday, where afternoon tea is accompanied by free-flowing cocktails, or go in for Sunday sharing platters with the same unlimited drinks treatment. Better yet, there's boy band-themed bingo brunches too.

Immersive Gamebox

When you're looking for sober first date ideas in Manchester, keep Immersive Gamebox on your radar. The pair of you will step into your own box to get stuck into a whole library of hyper-interactive games, including CIA training programmes and alien aptitude tests. And if you aren't booze-free? You can have drinks delivered to your private area.
